Point Defiance Park is Tacoma’s showpiece park with enough options to occupy kids everyday of the week. There are several covered shelters and heavy tree cover to get some shade or cover in the rain or hot sun.
If you have more time, visit the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium or experience the Five Mile Drive on the bluff-top for views and storm-watching points across Dalco Passage and the Tacoma Narrows. Check restrictions on Five Mile Drive on the website.
